Worship: Sundays @ 8:15, 9:40, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
Together: For the Sake of the World
You may be familiar with the hymn refrain "I am the church. You are the church. We are the church together. All who follow Jesus, all around the world, yes, we're the church together." It's a reminder that the church is not the property or the building, but the people. And a particular people that exist for the sake of the world. Don't miss worship this summer as we dig deeper into the letter to the Ephesians. It's a powerful little book in the New Testament that calls the church to unity, identifies the gifts given to members, and challenges us to live as new people who bless, encourage, and minister to others.

This Sunday's sermon is "Standard Issue," by Rev. Aaron Rousseau.
Mission Box
This week's mission box supports P4H global (formerly Projects 4 Haiti). P4H is committed to putting the development needs of the Haitian people above the self-gratifying desire to help. Their strategy is to connect people from all walks of life to form mutually beneficial relationships leading to positive change; equip their partners with skills, knowledge, and experiences to transform their communities; and empower people to look beyond circumstances to see the potential in others and themselves.

*Please note, if you are a member and did not have your photograph taken and would prefer not to have your contact information listed in the directory, please opt out by letting Jordyn know (376-6615).
